A Grand Day Out
It's been a fun day of celebration. No Street Party in this village, but a "Safari" with a gaggle of adults and children moving from one house to another to partake of liquid refreshment and snacks. I hosted at 1.30 p.m. just after the fly-past over Buckingham Palace had been televised, and we enjoyed glasses of "Pimm's", white bread cucumber sandwiches (with the crusts cut off), prawn vol-au-vents, a selection of "deep fried" (oven) prawns in batter, crumbs etc with a sweet chilli dip or a hoi sin & plum dip, and a cheeseboard, sitting out on the patio in hazy sunshine. I then followed the crowd to the last two stops on the trek, partaking of an alcoholic ginger beer and two glasses of minty margerita.
